We will have a viewing for dad on Monday from 6-9 pm at St. James Church, 200 South Finley Road Basking Ridge, NJ.  Tuesday morning at 10 am will be the funeral mass at the same church, followed by services at the cemetery at Holy Cross, also in Basking Ridge.

Please pass this information on as I am not certain I have everyone's contact information.  Your outpouring of kindness has been tremendous. Dad was such a gentle, soulful man.
